NEW STYLE GLIDING: A new form of gliding was demonstrated on March 16 at Cassel, in Germany, by Herr Espenlaub. His glider, shown above, was towed into the air by an ordinary aeroplane and at a height of 5,000 ft. the tow rope was detached, and he 'planed down to the aerodrome. The tow rope was so joined as to be quickly detachable by either pilot in case of any danger. It is intended to hold an exhibition of this form of gliding at Cassel next May.
